Am Kolel’s Sanctuary Retreat Center

Sanctuary Retreat Center offers comfortable guest rooms, beautiful grounds and a magnificent chapel. No phone (except for emergency use), no television, no swimming pool or workout room. Originally a turn-of-the-century family farm, this property has been in the hands of religious orders since the 1950’s, first as a convent and then a monastery. Today, Sanctuary continues to be a place for people of all ages to experience peace and joy amidst the bounty of nature. Sanctuary is under the auspices of Am Kolel (Hebrew for “an inclusive people”) is a 501(c)3 community directed by Rabbi David Shneyer. Am Kolel is devoted to spiritual renewal, deep ecumenism, and tikkun olam, which means “repairing/healing the world.” Sanctuary is open to ALL people…to anyone who would like a restful experience in a beautiful, natural setting. Our Retreat Manager, Gilah Rosner, Ph.D., has over 30 years of experience developing, implementing and managing educational and research programs both in medicine and in spiritual communities. Gilah’s special interests include herbal medicine, nutrition, vegetarian catering, meditation, mysticism, holistic and integrative medicine and the creation of new rituals for celebration and healing. She is a Level One Kundalini Yoga teacher.
